My husband and I have been trying for a child for six months now. It breaks my heart because everyone seems to have a baby, but me. I have the feeling Im pregnant, but I continue to have my period. My breast feel heavy, I feel sick morning and at night. My stomach feels heavy and uncomfortable. I am also on Lexapro as well and I don't know if this could make me feel some symptoms. I have tried obvulation test, but other then that I don't know what to do to become pregnant. Im desprite and heartbroken! Im scared I may be infurtil, because I am only 20 I figured it would be easy to become pregnant this young. I feel like I am now, but that could just be hope. I could really use some advice. Thank you

You need to RELAX. The fastest way NOT to get pregnant is to stress out and get frustrated. Did you ever hear the expression "a watched pot never boils?" It's true for conception too! You have to stop waiting for it to happen, relax and just enjoy being with your husband. Try having a glass of wine or two before hand so you can unwind. The more you obsess over this, the longer it is going to take you. I know it's very hard to take this advice when you want a baby so bad, but you have to take the "whatever will be, will be attitude." That's why so many women who can't conceive, and go on to adopt babies, end up getting pregnant shortly after....they aren't trying anymore. It will happen for you, you just have to not worry about it so much and let nature take it's course. As soon as you stop thinking about it and put your mind on other things...WHAM! You're pregnant! Good luck!

I am not a drinker, but maybe a small glass of red wine here or that will relax you. And it's good for you in small doses. Yes, a vacation, a project, anything to get your mind off trying to conceive will help ALOT. It's always when you are not thinking about it, that it happens, or right when you are in the middle of some big remodel, or whatever. It's gonna happen for you, dont you worry! You're young, and healthy. let us know when you do!
